Triangle Attack

Marcia, Tanith, Sigrun and Elincia can perform this special attack by surrounding an enemy from three sides and attacking. Note that only three characters can participate (hence a Triangle Attack).

Oscar (as a Silver Knight), Boyd and Rolf can also perform a Triangle Attack, by moving in the formation below and attacking with a bow or crossbow.

A few characters cannot promote normally, instead they are automatically promoted in events.

In the Japanese version, Mist needs a Holy Crown to promote. This can be found from an Info conversation in Part 4 Chapter 1.
